What is a tick?

Ticks are small insect-like creatures, thus they are easy to miss!

They live in woods, parks, grass and yards and crawl on humans and animals to feed.

They need blood to survive.

They range in size from nearly invisible (as small as the tip of a needle) to easily recognizable, and then they enlarge as they feed.

Blood-fed adult females can be blueberry to grape-sized.
